Ajani Goldmane is a Nacatl leonin planeswalker from the shard of Naya on the plane of Alara, who specializes in White-aligned soul magic. Born with leucism, his white appearance was deemed 'bad luck' by his entire tribe save for his brother, Jazal Goldmane. When Jazal was murdered by an unknown agent, Ajani went on a quest of vengeance against his brother's killer. His quest eventually led him to discover the nefarious machinations of Nicol Bolas. After dealing with Bolas and saving Alara, Ajani traveled to the plane of Theros where he met with fellow planeswalker Elspeth Tirel, whom he accompanies in the final battle against the newly ascended planeswalker-turned-god Xenagos. Following Elpeth's victory over Xenagos and subsequent betrayal at the hands of the sun god Heliod, Ajani inspires the peoples of Theros to reject the gods before leaving for the plane of Kaladesh in order to track down the planeswalker criminal Tezzeret. Ajani later became a member of the Gatewatch.

Striking Strength: Likely Class KJ (leonin are naturally somewhat stronger than humans to an unknown degree)

NOTE: Ajani once fought Nicol Bolas on Alara and defeated him. However, this was only possible due to both fighting in an unfamiliar environment which was hostile to both of them (the Maelstrom) and through Ajani's absorption of its last remnants which he immediately used to conjure an effigy of Bolas' soul and banish him from the plane.
